5 things Great about today:

Keen shoes. 'Nuf said.

Youngest, poring over a train catalog. Thank goodness it's good old AFFORDABLE Thomas. Not the Bachman catalog that his Daddy prefers to pore over...


Hair care products. But, Oh Darn; it's raining here today. Shucks, no point in fixing my hair for lunch out with the See Jane Run bookies (old book group friends) today!


COSTCO! Christmas this year will be All About Costco. One boy is getting bunk beds, the other is getting a double bed. He keeps falling out of his twin. So there are new flannel sheets (from Portugal! The Best!) for the boys. Down lap blankies for my parents in lovely shades of green and purple. Borghese cosmetics (Ok, these are for me), Flannel sleep bottoms for somebody.

Oldest, playing with Tinker Toys. And Magnetix. And building paper airplanes. And bouncing Silly Putty around. Because? He Can.

Because it's Friday, and because I've not done the 5 things in a long time.

Gosh, they seem so tall for their ages. You're going to have to put a brick on their heads to keep them from growing too fast;).

Must try that Borghese. Maybe I'll buy myself some for Christmas.

Costco rocks- my friend just bought 2 beautiful leather sofa's-she just happen to be there on the day they brought them in- they are gorgeous!

I'm thinking trains and building toys are also on the Xmas list!

That play structure is great!

Hi Vickee - thanks for the info on the socks, it was because they weren't 100% cotton I was concerned. - Julia x

Oh your boy's look like they are having loads of fun.

I love the design on your hardwood floor. The kid is pretty cute, too. ;)

what a sweet glimpse of your life.
I love that picture of your boy reading that train catalog.

I just got those very sheets in the space ship pattern for my little guy's room. They're the perfect design and colors. I have some of the Borghese too. That serum stuff is quite silky. I tried a sample, but haven't splurged on the full size bottle yet, even though it's a bargain by dept store standards. I don't care for the lip products though.
